Ashbrook Estate Shiraz
Hand-picked over 2 weeks the berries are cold soaked, gently plunged and
temperature controlled in 4 tonne parcels in open fermenters for gentle and full
extraction. The wine is matured in 100% French oak barriques (26% new) for 2
years, then further stored in our underground climate controlled cellar for 18
months before release. The inviting nose bursts with ripe raspberry, redcurrant and
cherry plum fruit leather aromas with hints of violet and sweet spice. Fine tannins, a
succulent depth of flavour and balanced acidity result in a wine that is extremely
easy to drink and a wonderful food wine. An exciting wine to lie down too!
Ashbrook Estate is one of the oldest established wineries in the Margaret River region located in the heart of Wilyabrup.
Truly family owned and operated since 1975, all wines are handpicked and crafted from only Estate grown fruit. All
processing, winemaking, bottling and packaging are done on site using the Estate’s own private facilities. 2016 sees
Ashbrook Estate complete its 38th Vintage, one of only 5 Margaret River wineries to do so!
James Halliday says: “This estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent
viticulture and fastidious winemaking.”
